Norwich City winger Diallang Jaiyesimi started his first game of the season for Swindon Town as they beat Crawley 4-0 in League Two.
Jaiyesimi has found his game time limited due to an ankle injury but has returned to action in the last three weeks. His dart up the right led to the opening goal but he struggled to find his rhythm in the fixture before succumbing to an injury after half-an-hour.
On the opposing side was young City striker Mason Bloomfield, who played the entirety of the match as the Red Devils were heavily beaten by Ritchie Wellens men.
In League One, Louis Thompson was involved in Shrewsbury Town's impressive home victory over Sunderland as they beat the Black Cats 1-0.
The Welsh midfielder replaced experienced operator Dave Edwards on the 69th minute. Thompson was a willing runner but failed to leave a lasting impact on the game.

Carlton Morris struggled to make an impact for Rotherham United as they failed to follow up their impressive midweek victory over Ipswich Town. The Millers were beaten 1-0 by high-flying Wycombe Wanderers at the New York Stadium.
Left-back James Husband played as Blackpool managed a goalless draw away to Burton Albion despite being reduced to ten-men.

Gilmour helped SC Telstar complete an impressive 4-1 victory over Helmond Sport in the Eerste Divisie whilst Mourgos' FC Dordrecht were on the receiving end of a 5-0 drubbing to De Graafschap. The Greek winger was replaced at half-time.
Tampa Bay Rowdies are undergoing a poor run of form currently, as their winless run extended to five fixtures. On-loan City defender Caleb Richards continues to be a key part of their squad as he completed another 90 minutes in their 2-1 defeat to Louisville City.
